Selena Gomez is on a roll.

After releasing her instant hit "Lose You to Love Me," the 27-year-old artist surprised her fans by dropping another new tune.

The singer debuted her song "Look at Her Now" and a corresponding music video on Thursday.

"And here's my special gift to all of my ride or dies!" she wrote on Instagram shortly after the release. "I created this with Apple especially for you. Y'all have been through it all with me and I thank you for pushing me to be the best. Look At Her Now is out now."

With its colorful lights and rockin' choreography, the music video certainly gave off a different vibe than the raw emotions associated with the black and white "Lose You to Love Me" video. However, the honest and powerful lyrics still depicted the pain of a breakup.

At the beginning of the song, Selena sang, "They fell in love one summer/A little too wild for each other/Shiny till it wasn't/Feels good till it doesn't/It was her first real lover/His too till he had another/Oh God when she found out/Trust levels went way down."

While she admitted "of course she was sad," she also sang "she's glad she dodged a bullet." 

"Took a few years to soak up the tears," she sang. "But look at her now/Watch her go."

Near the end of the empowering anthem, Selena sang how "she knows she'll find love only if she wants it."

While Selena doesn't name any names in the hit, many fans think the song referenced her former romance with Justin Bieber. After all, the two celebrities first went public with their romance in 2011, making it "her first real lover." Over the next few years, they would break up and make up a few times. It seemed like they had called it quits for good in 2014. However, Selena and Justin got back together near the end of 2017 following her split from The Weeknd. They ended up breaking up again in 2018. Justin is now married to Hailey Bieber.

During their time together, there were rumors that Justin cheated on Selena. As a result, some fans interpreted the lyrics about how "trust levels went way down" to be about these claims.

Overall, it seemed like the two songs complemented one another.

"I felt having these two songs released back to back completed the story of how one can rise no matter what challenges life brings," Selena told Rolling Stone in a statement. "Turning off the noise and living your life on your terms."
